off we go!

I don't do the resolution thing so, we'll just skip right on past that! dAAve, 248.5 yesterday. I didn't get any skinnier during the Holidays but i think I might have prevented a few pounds of weight gain by my efforts on the treadmill and at the Y over the past few weeks. Now it's time to put the Holiday chow trough away and get back to reality.

We had a nice turnout for the NYE dance we played, and my sinus infection has manged to stay pretty much a minor annoyance rather than a full blown nasal, head and chest event. So, that's good, nothing worse than trying to play my horn with a plugged up head and bad cough!

I was lying in bed this morning and my mind sorta began to race (I guess I was done sleeping, even though I sit here yawning!) about all the stuff I need to get done at work, etc. I should done some work at home over the break, or made myself go in to the office a day or two more than I did but, with Ian, and going to see my folks Thurs/Fri and having my in-laws here until Tues, it was easy to blow stuff off. I did go in on Wednesday and get a good bit of work done so, that's good. It's my typical post-Christmas "Oh My God I've got shit to do" remorse! This too shall pass! Frankly, I spent much of the Holiday tired and relaxing. So now, I need to crack the whip and get my arse in gear! It's the New Year and I've not only got lots to do, but lots to be thankful for and enjoy!

I've got two major projects to kick off 2007: 1.) A For Sale By Owner marketing program at work (it's gonna be awesome once everything is in place and hopping!); and 2.) We're re-doing our kitchen. It's the only room in our home that has yet to be updated from when our home was built in 1973. (yep, you guessed it... good old Harvest gold motif, with a nice "Holly Hobby" sorta wallpaper thing going on...) It'll be great once we get it done, and I am really going to try to take a positive, adventure type attitude and try to enjoy the process as well. My poor dust-fearing sorta depressive type "glass half empty' kinda wife, lol she's already chalked this up to being an
"ordeal" as she puts it, lol. You see, she built a home way back when (about 20 yrs ago) with her ex, back when she was drinking heavily and, somehow she's now the authority on kitchen remodels. As evidenced by the consistent negative reaction to my suggestions and ideas, this should be fun! The problem for her is that she is very much a creature of habit and routine. And well, this thing is going to really upset the apple cart when it comes to her devotion to things normal and regular. And, she doesn't do well with change, disarray, disorganization or dirt/dust. So, I suppose from her perspective, it will be an ordeal. My job: Make it less of an ordeal for her! I am looking forward to it, but I tend to assume that things will go smoothly, only to get really pissed when they don't! So, here's to me not getting really pissed once this thing gets under way. This ought to be interesting!

Prayer for the day...

God/HP/JC... Here we are at the beginning of another year, thanks so very much for keeping me sober, a day at a time. I am grateful to You for all of the blessings You continue to throw my way each day. I only hope that I can see them and remember to share them with those around me as I enjoy them. I've been experiencing some fatigue and my mind has tried to start worrying about stuff I shouldn't worry about. Please help me to remember that You always provide everything I need in life on a daily basis. I pray that today, I might give myself over to You and to Your Will that I might live a peaceful, serene day knowing that You're in charge and that everything You do is infinitely Good.

Happy New Year and peace to y'all!
